He shoved my 6 year old by his collar bone to the wall hitting his head and back against the wall and threatened to call the police on him. My family and I will never go back there. This isn't the first sketchy activity he has done but him part his hands on my child was crossing the line!
Everyone in my family never has anything wrong with them but a cold, according to this doctor. In spite of his saying so, he prescribes antibiotics. I'm not sure which is worse, the constant misdiagnosis or the fact that he constantly prescribes antibiotics for what he thinks is a cold. He prescribed drugs for me that I specifically told him I can't take, saying that "it shouldn't make a difference." In addition to that, whenever I talk to him, describe my symptoms, and tell him about my medical history and what other doctors have said about my conditions and treatments they've tried in the past, he looks at me like he's totally humoring me and it's all he can do to only smirk mildly.
